congressman jesse jackson junior will stay in office, despite staying out of the public eye for several months. he won in a landslide victory over republican challenger brian woodworth and independent marcus lewis. jackson did not make any public appearances last night. but he did release a statement to his supporters, saying. i am humbled and moved by the support shown today. everyday, i think about your needs and concerns. once the doctors approve my return to work i will continue to be the progressive fighter you have known for years. yesterday's election returns were a vote for the status quo. while republicans held the house, democrats maintained their hold on the senate. the democrats picked up at least two new seats. and a third republican seat in maine went independent, and effectively democrat, assuming the new senator, angus king, caucuses with the democrats. w-g-n political analyst paul lisnek has been here since yesterday. he's in the newsroom with a closer look at what happened last night.
12:13pm

12:14pm
at the electoral votes that read does not matter. we're looking at 303 electoral votes for the president to only 2064 run a. for romney. florida is still not decided. it looks like they may go to the president. whether they do or don't, it will not change the result. this party have to do some soul-searching. >> what questions should the republicans be asking themselves? >> that had to wake up and reflect on that very issue. the primaries make life very difficult these days for every party. the forces everybody to the extreme. romney is not as
12:15pm
extreme as he pretended to be during the primaries. position he took on immigration cost him the latino vote. the position he took on abortion cost him among women. that is why he was so down. it was very costly. because he took those extreme positions when it came time for the general he was not really able to back out. he never properly connected with the average middle-class voter. >>do you see any people that may emerge? >> who are the emerging stars?
12:16pm
>> we did talk about whether or marco rubio would have been a choice. and was all about the budget and all about the dollars. socially paul ryan was very conservative. >> jeb bush took himself out. at some point he might come back. he is very popular among the latino community. thanks paul. a reminder, if you're looking for more results. check out our website, w-g-n tv dot com slash elections. coming up next. we'll take a look at some controversial ballot measures that passed across the country. including the two states that legalized marijuana and same- sex marriage. but first, chicago police search for a man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl just blocks from president obama's home. hey kev, how about a bike ride? huh?
